|Today, Nov. 7, is Election Day in Texas. Statewide, voters will weigh in on 14 proposed amendments to the state constitution. Many voters will also have the opportunity to vote in local elections. |
“If voters did not cast a ballot during early voting, I encourage them to make a plan to vote today,” said Secretary Jane Nelson.
Election Day voting hours are 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at all polling places statewide. For specific questions regarding polling places, always consult your county elections office.
Election night results for statewide ballot propositions will be available through the election night returns portal.
Election Day Voting Locations
If a county participates in the Countywide Polling Place Program, commonly referred to as vote centers, voters may cast a ballot at any location in their county on Election Day.
If a county does not have countywide polling, on election day voters must cast their ballot at a location specific to their registration precinct.
Texas voters planning to cast your ballot on Election Day can find their polling locations by using My Voter Portal.
